Open File LAB/1602 - New ICP-ES Geochemical Data for Regional Labrador Lake-Sediment and Lake-Water Surveys

J.W. McConnell and C. Finch

St. John's, Newfoundland, October, 2012


The report provides new inductively coupled plasma-emission spectrographic (ICP-ES) data for lake-sediment samples, as well as the original analytical and field data for reconnaissance-scale lake-sediment and water surveys conducted in Labrador by the Geological Survey of Canada between 1977 and 1984. Some 19 836 samples were obtained from 18 706 sites. The ICP-ES analyses were performed by the Geochemical Laboratory of the Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Natural Resources. These data are particularly suitable for displaying in a geographic information system or for performing statistical analyses.

The report contains descriptions of the ICP-ES analytical procedures, comments on data quality, statistical summaries of all data and individual symbol maps of the geographic distributions of the ICP-ES elements. The field and descriptive data, the ICP-ES analytical data as well as previously determined analytical data are provided.
